Tiger Read-N-Rec is a half-day summer camp that incorporates literacy intervention and recreation activities to improve reading and writing skills while having fun and playing games. It will include:

  • Approximately two hours of individualized, evidence-based literacy activities per day.
  • Approximately one hour of recreational activities specifically designed to foster social interaction and emotional health, boost mood and attention, and build confidence.
  • Three weekly themes designed to keep children interested.

Tiger Read-N-Rec is a collaborative effort between the School of Communication Sciences and Disorders and the School of Health Sciences. Camp is led by a licensed speech-language pathologist with the assistance of graduate student clinicians.
